Fitzgerald & Associates - Eye Specialist in Cedar Rapids & Iowa City Facebook logo Twitter_Icon_1C-scr Header

In 2007 the principles of Cedar Rapids Vision In Motion were implemented. It was through our experiences working with individuals and families struggling with vision challenges that it became obvious that a service modality was not being fully explored in this community. Dr. DeAnn Fitzgerald, OD, along with a team of experts began to develop a special niche service that bridges the gap between assessment and treatment for children and adults with visual processing dysfunction. The motto became, "it's a brain thing".

Monday - Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
